The acclaimed musicians Maggie Rogers and Questlove will join the New Yorker staff writer Kelefa Sanneh for The New Yorker Live’s first in-person event. They’ll discuss their music and greatest influences, as well as Rogers’s studies at Harvard Divinity School and Questlove’s career with the Roots. Rogers, a former student of Questlove’s, will also perform several songs from her recently released sophomore album, “Surrender.” To begin the evening, the New Yorker staff writer Hua Hsu will tell a story adapted from his upcoming memoir, “Stay True,” about how befriending—and losing—someone who listened to the “wrong” kind of music changed his life.
The event at Symphony Space is now sold out. To add your name to a waiting list for in-person tickets click here.
